Dimmitt (Castro County, Texas, USA) H4 (stone) Found 1942

This much under-rated meteorite was found in Castro County, Texas, USA in 1942. Dimmit has had a long Earth age, resulting in weathering to the stone, though remarkably many specimens retain patches of fusion crust. Classified as an H4 chondrite, H5 & LL clasts have also been found within the breccia (a mix of different rock types), plus extremely fine grained interstellar diamonds.
